    I miss firefox. Stopped using it since they've disabled Ctrl+E combo. Opera is rubbish at multi monitor/multi window work. IE9 on the other hand is very good in that respect but seriously buggy for everyday use

    I don't miss Firefox because I still use it. However I also use Google Chrome.

    They offer different features so I tend to use the two browsers for different things. For example: Chrome can move tabs onto a different screen without having to open a separate instance of chrome before hand, very handy for viewing an email and watching a video on 2 different screens(dual screen user). BUT Chrome does not have a No Script extension to block unwanted malware before it even runs on a website. So when I browse sites I am not sure of I switch to Firefox for safety.

    I would love to use only 1 browser but I'm not willing to give up either of those features.

    Mozilla has been focusing a lot on speed lately. Unfortunately, they have the wrong idea of what "speed" is (at least to me). I couldn't care less about great javascript execution speed if the browser itself is so slow to startup. They need to make the browser lighter and faster to start. And don't be tempted to cheat by pre-loading libraries either. ... just my opinion.

    My thoughts exactly. On some days Firefox takes so long to start up i think about moving to chrome.

    Luckily for them i never really liked chrome.

    In FF you can move tabs to a new window without opening the window first, but possibly you need the tab mix plus add-on.

    Nope, I do this all the time without any tab related addons installed, although I'm not sure if support for it is new in the beta or was around in 3.6.
